About: is PRESS

is PRESS publishes short run artists books and zines documenting urban art and conceptual time-based art projects in an accessible narrative format along the loose theme of individuals and their relationship to groups.

For day-to-day updates on in process projects please follow is on instagram or tumblr. To read our sold out publications check us out on issuu. For bi-weekly shares of odd-art news from The Institute of Sociometry like us on Facebook.

In an effort to fund the publishing of conceptual artists books is PRESS also utilizes our letterpress printing and design skills to help other artists realize their work in printed form. You may contact is PRESS for your custom letterpress printing needs and help with self-publishing or print-design projects.

Instead is deploys strategies from ’Pataphysics, Fluxus, Situationism, Neoism, Immediatism, Ontological Anarchy, and Dada Epistimology.

is has accredited 601 special agents in 23 countries. Agents are recruited via post. Active is agents check in with reports, which are published on sociometry.com, and submitted on tri-fold displays at the quadrennial Sociometry Fair
